Catherine House was creepy weird and gave me strange dreams after I finished it before going to bed last night. I hadn’t planned on finishing it until I saw that I had fewer than 30 pages left.

Apparently fun, easy books have been exactly what I needed to get my reading back up. I’m also done with How to Train Your Dragon, and while Catherine House doesn’t fit into the “fun” category, it is weird and has sucked me right in. I just started it yesterday, and I wish I had a longer lunch break so I could read it at work. I might still try.

I have fully immersed myself into fun, easy reads rather than try to get through anything heavy, and I’m perfectly ok with that because it means I’m still reading.

This past week was exhausting, and I ended up reading I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf as a sort of comfort read because my brain did not want to have to think about anything and I needed to relax before bed.

Tomorrow I start my new job, and because my mind equates a first day with Monday, I thought today was Sunday. Luckily, I woke up early-ish and realized that, even though it feels like a Sunday, it is not. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have posted this until much later.

This past week has been a whirlwind of activity, including going to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, and I think I have finally recovered. At least, I’m recovered enough for another whirlwind week. I’m not going to make any plans for the weekend so that I can relax and read and nap.

I was out of town this weekend for my Dad’s memorial service, and for the next two days, my daughter is visiting. Last week, I also got some really good news about my heart condition, and I got a job offer. It has been a whirlwind of activity and emotions. How I’ve managed to read over two hundred pages is beyond me.

I’m starting to think yard work is never done. At least not until Winter. I’m very glad our front and back yards are not very big.

We’re getting all the stuff fixed in the house as problems come up, and with the exception of a couple of things I still need to unpack, the house finally feels like a home. The Boyfriend and I had a mostly lazy weekend, and that gave me the time to read an entire book and get a good start on two others.

I’m officially moved into the house, and of course, something had to break. The AC suddenly stopped working and no amount of troubleshooting resulted in it starting up again. Luckily, we have several fans. I haven’t been reading much, or at least it doesn’t feel like much, since unpacking and finding a home for everything is now the top priority.

It’s been raining on and off for the past few days so I haven’t been able to get as much yard work done as I would like. However, I am nearly done with the cleaning inside the house, and I’ve also been packing up stuff (mostly books) in the apartment to get ready for Moving Day.

I’m trying to finish Shades of Grey by tomorrow when my library loan expires. I’m not able to renew the ebook, thanks to other people waiting for it, but I did place a physical copy on hold, so hopefully, I won’t have to wait too long to get back to reading it if I’m not able to finish it in time. Of course, I could do the trick of taking my Kindle off the wi-fi, and see if that will give me some more time.
